I run JS/Linux in Chrome.
I am loading mpg123 with a test mp3 file. Mpg123 optimized for i386_nofpu.

gzip -dc mpg123.test.tar.gz | tar xf -


vmtime ./mpg123 -t cbr.mp3

A two-minute mp3 with 320 bitrate was decoded in 45 seconds. At 40 MIPS (estimated).

After all, you can check at home how long it takes for you to decode. It's not difficult.

One of two options here

1. Different sound card
2. Mess around with the FSB and/or ISA clock rate

I always wanted to test an original ssa/5 90 with a 1x multiplier and an 83mhz FSB

The ISA clock is likely generated by a clockgen chip which takes an input clock value from a crystal and outputs configurable clocks for FSB, PCI, and ISA. There is likely no BIOS option to set this, so you're looking at datasheets for the motherboard and potentially the clockgen.
